D-Link DIR-657

details: HD Media Router 1000
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2011-07-14
updated: 2015-11-05
The HD Fuel technology in the DIR-657 lets you watch Netflix and Vudu, play your Wii or Xbox 360 online or make Skype calls-all without worrying about the skipping or latency you might experience with standard routers. It does so by automatically giving extra bandwidth for video, gaming and VoIP calls using HD Fuel QoS technology.

The D-Link HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657) also comes equipped with 4 Gigabit ports to provide speeds up to 10x faster than standard 10/100 ports. What's more, it uses 802.11n technology with multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform 802.11g devices. The built-in SD card slot allows you to share files easily.
